Santa Clause? No
Has he been employed as Danny DeVito's twin brother? No
A race organizer? No
A current or former president of a cycling federation? No
Raced against the pros in an official race? Yes (a very official race, as official as they get)

Tandem-pilot? No
 
Active? Yes* (As much as he ever has been)

Does his name appear on the result sheet of a pro race? Yes
 
So, let me get this straight: He isn't - and has never really been - active, yet he has raced official races? Active, in this game, usually means is currently a professional cyclist. He is not, and never has been, but he has this year been in an official event, therefore he is as active, in the realm of top level cycling, as he has ever been, and that is more than not at all.

He's not European, except he was born in Europe and - likely - has citizenship in a European country? In this game, one's nationality, and therefore one's continent, is the flag under which one rides.

Raced a pro race after 1/1 2000? Yes, and because I have described him as active, within parameters, much more recently than that. Consider swapping "top level" for pro.

I'll try to get back to Yes/No answers

But doesn't he ride under the flag of the country in which he has citizenship? Dual citizenship is a thing: he may have it.
